Got the tape of this show somewhere in my junior year of high school by an older Head who worked at a BP gas station in my hometown.

I was familiar with late 60's dead and early 90's dead, but this was like finding a secret garden of transcendence. Estimated>Other One (what?!?!) Listened to this Red Rocks non-stop, and burnt out two Maxell copies of this show roving in my blue 86' volvo station wagon.

Summer after senior year/graduation, three good fiends and I drove that wagon from Cleveland, Ohio, to 910 Haight-Asbury. We made a special, deliberate stop at Red Rocks, in Morrison, to honor this show. We pulled in the late afternoon, parked as close as we could, got high high high and listened to this entire show, about eighteen years later. We left roses for the ghosts.

We camped that night on the banks of the Colorado
River and I remember feeling the peace and accomplishment of what I imagine a religious pilgrim feels after such a quest. I still feel it today, tonight, as I listen to this show- a warm feeling, like a candle- I have loved this show and I have given thanks.

but a soul."

Absolutely a five-star show. The band was feelin' it, the audience was feelin' it, and I'm feelin' it -- they always seemed to kick it up a notch at Red Rocks, and this show is no exception.

gotta love jerry shhhh-ing during wharf rat.
What a great show this is!
Reviewer: njpg - favoritefavoritefavorite - September 29, 2011
Subject: Great show,
but this recording is very thin-sounding and bottomless. Or maybe they never did get the bass working right, but the AUD of this show is way better sounding.
Reviewer: Alto_Madness - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - September 27, 2011
Subject: Fantastic
Fantastic show. Jerry's guitar, Bobby's voice, Donna's harmonies, and the choice of songs make it so. Jerry's choice of guitar sounds and licks is impeccable - with that uncanny sense of timing and nuance, he evokes Chuck Berry, Chicago style blues, Tennessee bluegrass, British Invasion, psychedelia, and '60s folk revival over the course of three hours. The rhythm section never sounded better, and really shine on a hard-driving "Drums -> Space". The songs draw from the best of the Dead's repertoire, and strike the perfect balance between the folksy and psychedelic aspects of the band. Also, any show that has both "Dire Wolf" and "Wharf Rat" will almost automatically get a high rating in my book. All I can say is, I wish I had been there, though I was born too late for that - as a one-year-old, I probably would not have appreciated it fully, though I'm sure I would have enjoyed the friendly faces.

Speechless, full of joy and sadenss at the same time. This was Garcia, Donnna, Bobby, Phil, Mickey and Billy at their absolute finest up to that moment. One amazing night in the foothills of the rocky mountains.

The recording is bar-none for the energy and quality it converys. Thank you to those who made it possible.

The absolute best version of one of the best songs of the entire last century!!! Does anyone know of other versions?? I did a search but could find jack-----Bob and Donna nail that stuff!!!
Reviewer: RawBC - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - September 16, 2010
Subject: Wow!
I can't stop listening to this show, it's great! I keep coming back to it when I need something to listen to while I work. What a great slice of history preserved for all of us to enjoy. Thank you to everyone who made this one possible, and thank you Internet Archive. Weird side note, I was in Wal-Mart (I know, I know...) the other day and stumbled on a reproduction of the shirt from this concert...

Anways, enjoy!

like the 40sbd 60AUD mix

gives just the extra bump of channel/panning we need
Reviewer: Jeff Knorek from Nova Scotia - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 19, 2010
Subject: this even ~sounds~ like a summer show
Spring is an intense time of year, what with change and rebirth and regrowth and all. So it is no wonder that the Spring '78 run was, as a whole, more intense than this summer show...but summer has that easy-glide, smooth action slurpy-slippery yummy fuck-as-much-as-we-want-to kinda' vibe, and this show reflects this is a great way..."let's party and let's ROCK and *Love each other* all the while"...this recording is a must have.

Reviewer: gastheavalon - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - September 2, 2009
Subject: His hair was perfect
Man, there is something about this show. The thin air must've gone to their heads or somethin'. Donna is great here. Bobby is also kills it. Not something written all that often. They sound like it's a party and everything's hitting them just right. Bobby's freaky slide experiments somehow keep paying off, and Donna is keeps flying off the handle and for some reason it sounds very right. Not to mention her back and forth with Garcia on Werewolves : oh yeah? yeah? awwww! It even sounds cool that Jerry's voice is all horse and rough. Sometimes it all comes together...
Reviewer: rdeadbuck - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 22, 2009
Subject: Quality Show
I have always felt that this show never quite got the raves it deserves. Outside of the killer 2nd set and three encores to boot, the overall energy of this show is phenominal. As far as the recording goes, I have never heard a show that has Bob in the mix as clear as this one does. Anyone who doubts Bob's importance as a musician to this band has not heard this show. It is a must have!!!!!!!
Reviewer: kapowsin - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - April 20, 2009
Subject: Quality Matrix...
I would like to draw attention to this matrix. It's very well done...I've heard matrixes where it sounds you have reverb on everything because the two recordings are not perfectly in sync (your ear can detect if it's off even 1/1000's of a second), and this matrix does not have that problem. Also, the ratio of sbd/audio seems perfect to me. On one hand it has that 'it's--like-you're-actually-there' feel, but the music is finally loud and clear too. In my experience as a listener, that balance is hard to find...so hard for me, in fact, that I can't really tolerate very many pure audience recordings...Anyway...It's a great concert...About as vibrant as 1978 gets (4/24 and 12/31 are my other favorites from the year)...A highlight for me is '>wharf rat> franklin's tower'. I've been on a bit of a GD bender the last few weeks, so excuse me if I sound delerious...
